Glass Beams, WOMADelaide, March 11th
When the masked drummer languidly slides his drumstick down the gleaming chimes, the dream sequence begins. And what a curious vision it is too: three fellows with golden masks glittering in time with the chimes.
Melbourne-based three piece Glass Beams deliver blissful Indian-laced psychedelica reverberating with dirty guitar riffs, driving bass, and ethereal sighs.
After only launching their debut album Mirage in 2020, the pandemic meant WOMADelaide was their first-ever live show – and it was worth the wait. An interdimensional delight.
